How does distinct count work in pivot table?

If I as summing distinct count of a customer

for example

If customer A bought stuff in all three years will he show three times or will he show in first occurence in data
or will he show in first year of data regardless of occurrence in my file?

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

It’s a distinct count within whatever the relevant context is. So if A bought in all 3 years, he would appear as 1 in each year in that table.
